When I spent the winter in Arizona I developed some new habits: fewer lattes, fewer meals out, more exercise. I resolved to bring those habits home with me; you know, things to do to feel as good as I did in the sun.
Today I felt not quite myself. I had a busy day: hosted a board meeting at my house in the morning, had surprise visits from two family members in the afternoon, took care of some financial paperwork. Still, I felt a little off. I wondered if I was getting sick.
Then I realized I have consumed a box of Girl Scout cookies and two bowls of ice cream in the last three days, but minimal protein or vegetables. Plus, my swimming class on Friday was canceled due to inclement weather. Instead of walking two miles instead, I chose to have two lattes.
What on earth?
It's so, so easy to get back to old ways when I'm in the old place! Now that I see it, I can change it. Tomorrow!
On the good side, it's been lovely this week to have a St. Patrick's Day meal with family, have coffee with my business partner, find a water aerobics class I like, and weed the strawberry bed.
